    associated with seasonal forms of Parnara guttata guttata (Bremer & Grey) (a pest of rice), larvae and adults were reared in groups at photoperiods of 16 and 14 h and a temperature of 25 deg C, and flight activity of tethered adults was measured using an automatic recorder. Females reared at LD 14:10, corresponding to the migratory adults occurring in the field in early autumn, had higher flight activity, lower fecundity and a longer preoviposition period than those reared at LD 16:8, which corresponds to the non-migratory adults in summer. These physiological characteristics are common in insectsinsectsSubject Category: Organism Names
